TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Major Adams
Date27 July 1900
DescriptionImmediately after Adams' last visit Harrison sent to Somerset House to try and recover the legacy receipt sent there instead of to Adams. The officer to whom the note was addressed promised to return the document as soon as possible, but since then Harrison has had no further word from him. Harrison wonders if the Officer sent the document straight to Adams, asks if this is the case and if not will send again to Somerset House.
